After our pioneering online festival in May, HowTheLightGetsIn is back. It's better than ever. And this time we are going global.

HowTheLightGetsIn Global 2020 - Delhi, London, New York -  runs over the weekend 19-20 September.  With more than 200 hundred events, from world class speakers and performers streamed live simultaneously across 8 stages, it is going to be an event quite unlike any other.  

The first events of the day come from India, then we move to London, and end the day in New York. Whatever time zone you are in you'll get a full day's festival experience each day of the weekend.  

What's more, we are building on our last online festival. The site is going to be more immersive, the technology smoother, giving you more ways to meet other festival goers in a myriad of video social spaces that you won't find anywhere else.  This is an event you really can't miss!

Festival Tickets

Festival Tickets give you access to all of the online debates, talks, bands, comedy, and DJs over the weekend 19-20th September +  a host of video social spaces to meet, chat and dance with other festival goers - offering ways to interact with others you don't even get at a location based festival.  

Just like a physical festival, it's even more fun if you come with friends. Talk over your experiences  in any of our social video spaces. Dance together in our disco.  Chat privately using our 'private chat' function in any of our social video spaces. Meet others and join the party! To make it even easier to come with friends, you can now buy multiple Festival Tickets in one purchase. Just make sure you have your friends' email addresses to hand.
